Urban League Hosts Football Classic

NEW YORK -- The 39th Annual NYUL Football Classic will take place on September 25, 2010 at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The Football Classic benefits the Whitney M. Young Scholarship Fund and the educational programs of the New York Urban League.

 

The New York Urban League Whitney M. Young, Jr. Memorial Scholarships are given to deserving students each year to offset the cost of pursing an undergraduate degree. Whitney M. Young, Jr. Scholars are able to use the scholarship towards the cost of books, meal plans and living expenses in addition to tuition. The hope of the New York Urban League is that these scholarships will assist students with the incidentals that many financial aid packages and other scholarships do not cover. Scholarship applications are accepted each Fall.

 

NYUL is committed to providing scholarships to students who show promise. “The Classic introduces thousands of New York children to the college experience, and proceeds help hundreds more attend college at an HBCU or other university.” said Arva R. Rice, President & CEO of the New York Urban League.

 

Over $15 million dollars in scholarships have been awarded to more than 4,000 students in pursuit of higher education. This year’s Classic features Howard University and Morgan State University football teams. The Classic is always filled with fun, friends, food, and an exciting game enjoyed by thousands of fans. This will be the 1st College Football game to be played in the new stadium.

 

The New Meadowlands Stadium is a $1.6 billion piece of architectural history that creates an opportunity for over 80,000 fans to experience the modern technology, and unique amenities, the VIP clubs, the indoor Pavilion, and more.

 

About The New York Urban League:
The New York Urban League (NYUL) has a rich history and long legacy of service to New Yorkers. The NYUL was founded in 1919 by an inter-racial group of concerned New Yorkers in response to the difficulties faced by African Americans migrating from the agricultural and rural south, to the industrial, urban centers of the north. Today, the mission of the New York Urban League (NYUL) is to enable African Americans and other underserved communities to secure a first class education, economic self-reliance and equal respect of their civil rights through programs, services and advocacy. Some of their signature programs include the Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner, the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Football Classic and the Champions of Diversity Breakfast. The New York Urban League, Inc. is one of the local affiliates of the National Urban League, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, multi-ethnic, social service organization celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.
